Parkour is the act of moving from point “a” to point “b” using the obstacles in your path to increase your efficiency. Sounds like a fun game, right? Well, it includes running, climbing, swinging, vaulting, jumping, rolling, quadrupedal movement, and other movements as deemed most suitable for the situation. Parkour's development from military training gives it some aspects of a non-combative martial art.
With most sports, a rhythm of progression is set naturally. You have rules and objectives, so you play within those rules to meet those objectives. Eg: Scoring a goal in soccer is the objective of the game, and not using your hands is one of the major rules. In basketball, you must dribble and pass to make baskets. The structure of these sports creates clear blueprints for what to expect.
Parkour isn’t built on rules or objectives; it’s built on expression. This is why delving into a sport like parkour can be so intimidating. Like ATTIITUDE, not abide by any rules or regulation but what you really are.
